Ceren Şahin Gebizli
Researcher at SnT, Verification & Validation Lab, University of Luxembourg
Ceren Sahin Gebizli received her Ph.D. degree in software engineering and testing focusing on model-based testing from Ozyegin University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 2017.

She worked as a Test Architect at Vestel Electronics R&D Design Verification and Test group between 2010-2017 where she led many test projects and worked on design and automation of Digital TVs functional tests.

She is currently a Researcher at SnT, Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust, Software Verification and Validation group, V&V Lab. in University of Luxembourg.

She is a program committee member of HUSTEF, UCAAT and TestIstanbul conferences. Also, she was a speaker at HUSTEF 2017 in Budapest, Hungary, Nordic Testing Days 2017, Tallinn, Estonia, IEEE ICST TAIC-PART 2017 in Tokyo, Japan, UCAAT 2016, Budapest, Hungary, IEEE QRS-MVV 2016 in Vienna, Austria, IEEE ICST TAIC-PART 2016 in Chicago, IL, USA, IEEE ICST TAIC-PART 2015 in Graz, Austria, IEEE COMPSAC STA 2014 in Vasteras, Sweden, and TestIstanbul 2013, İstanbul, Turkey.

She is also a member of Turkish Testing Board and a part of ISTQB organization as working voluntary in ISTQB Academia Committee.

Better Test Design to Increase Test Effectiveness & Efficiency

Detailed testing of complex software systems needs a long period of time. Test approaches that adopt the automated testing methods provide cost reduction, improving the product quality and effective time and resource usage. However, that is only the execution part and execution tools cannot find bugs without an effective test design.

Model-Based Testing enables automatic generation of test cases based on models of a system. It has been successfully applied in various application domains, each of which might introduce specific challenges.

Testing of software-intensive products have to be effective and efficient. Effectiveness is required to find worst-case scenarios and capture the most critical defects. Efficiency is required for the optimal use of available resources.

During my talk, I will concentrate on some test design techniques and present how they can increase the effectiveness and efficiency of testing.
